I supplied The Guardian newspaper with images for a special insert about Liverpool's year as European Capital of Culture. The first image is of lead singer Howie Payne performing with The Stands at a Love Music Hate Racism gig at Liverpool University. The second is of Eyuphuro from Mozambique playing live at Africa Oye festival 2006, Sefton Park, Liverpool.
Update May 2011
The Guardian re-used the Africa Oye image in an article about 10 essential arts and cultural events in Liverpool

"I have employed David for conferences, presentations, social engagements, marketing materials, open days, portrait shots, official document signings amongst many others. David has always been amenable to our sometimes short notice and has delivered our photos in a quick time frame as agreed and sometimes much quicker depending on our needs. He has always been very helpful, he follows and delivers on the brief and is able to give additional value to jobs with minimal briefs. I am more than happy to recommend David and he will no doubt deliver the same quality he provides us."
